Historically, let's mention that festival made its first appearance in May 2010,
on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the birth of D.Reinhardt and continues until today because of its high acceptance by the public.
The festival in these 10 years, has been attended by over 40 bands and more than 300 musicians.There have been numerous seminars and open dance and music lessons.It has hosted fashion shows, dancing groups, djs, children's actions and film and documentary screenings.
And mainly, the significant pioneering exhibition of hand-made musical instruments was established, by Greek luthiers, as in most similar European festivals.
The festival achieved its original goal!This music is now everywhere around us.On radio, on television, in cinema.
But first of all, it is in the hearts of more and more people.
So this year we will meet together with the colorful Meet Market, to celebrate once again the joy of this music,
in the Technopolis City of Athens on the weekend of 14 & 15 September 2019.
Let's celebrate our first decade together!
The Djangofest gypsy jazz festival in Greece is an initiative of musicians who are involved with gypsy jazz music and their friends. As a self-organized event, it takes place with the action of the musicians and volunteers involved,
